2003 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Review

The subdued styling, borrowed from the Grand Marquis and Crown Victoria allows the Marauder to be a true sleeper. Considering the weight of the Marauder performance is excellent. Handling is predictable, and can be pushed. Tail slide in hard cornering is likely in hard cornering or slick conditions, but the long wheel base and responsive steering allows a driver to push through it. On the entertaining side, when cruising on or slightly above the legally posted speed limit on the interstate, lines of brake lights will pop up and hearts will skip a beat as police cruiser clone pops out of traffic. Very reliable. I replaced a set of shocks, 18 oil changes, k&n air filter & drove it over 95k.

Favorite Features

Large comfortable seating, back to basics CD and Cassette combination, center console gauge package, which i never really used but liked having.

Suggested Improvements

18 inch wheels only have one matching tire set from BF Goodrich, Rear tires are taller that the front. Tires are not cheap, nor do they wear evenly. Not being able to rotate the tires is frustrating. Outer and inner tire wear on the fronts and center wear on the rears, no matter the tire pressure.
